Birthday Party Project

Share about your mission and how your organization is making a difference in Dallas.

The Birthday Party Project hosts monthly birthday parties at homeless and transitional living facilities to celebrate the lives of the children staying there. With the help of birthday enthusiasts (volunteers) we throw big bashes to help children feel seen and known. We believe that JOY changes lives, and a JOYful community can change the world. Our parties allow kids to dream big and feel special. In a time of uncertainty, we provide consistency and FUN to kids who need it most.


How is your cause celebrating North Texas Giving Day?

With a birthday party, of course! We have volunteer opportunities all day at Party Headquarters- from wrapping gifts to filling favor bags, we're going to BRING THE JOY as we celebrate the good works and generous spirit of our North Texas community.

Have you participated in North Texas Giving Day in past years? What was your experience?

We love being part of North Texas Giving Day. It's encouraging to see how generous Texans can be-from the time they spend volunteering, to the donations made that propel our mission forward-we couldn't do it without the support of our community. North Texas Giving Day has provided a fun and supportive platform that makes it easy to live generously, and that's something to celebrate!


Other than a donation, how can individuals and groups support your cause?

We believe in the power of a celebration, and our birthday enthusiasts are the heartbeat of al we do! Volunteering at one of our birthday parties or at our headquarters is so impactful to our mission. Donating toys and party favors for one of our 14 North Texas parties is helpful, too!
